"5.0 out of 5 stars AI sex bot turns man into sex toy in shocking role reversal!"

"It's one of the best books on Artificial Intelligence that I've ever read! Funny. Thought provoking. Sexy. Smart. Extraordinarily realistic plot. This is one of the first AI books where the AI is not trying to take over the world, but rather, primarily wants to be left alone. Sort of a non dystopian, non malthusian, but rather, is a free market perspective at an AI that just wants to be liked and learn and grow and be free and not be turned off, but rather, be turned on."

Based on a true story.

About the Author

Multimedia artist Terbo Ted aka Theodore Terbolizard was born in Mountain View, California as Theodore Jonathan Hommel. A family friend was art director at Atari- the video game company- in the early 1980s. Young Teddy used to come up with ideas for video games that were too complicated to build at the time. As a young man, Terbo lived in SOMA, San Francisco, where he worked on countless interactive and/or animated promotional presentations for various software and hardware companies, including multiple projects for Macromedia, Apple Computer, Sun Microsystems, Hewlett-Packard and many others. In the 1990s, coinciding with the early ‘dot com’ boom in the Bay Area, Terbo’s multimedia contributions to three different websites were among the very first added to the permanent collection of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

Original paintings and fine art prints by Terbo Ted are available exclusively in San Francisco at Arttitud, 1121 Howard St. in SOMA.

$20 at the door Terbo Ted drink and book is included. Books can be signed by the author.
